        Trevor Hall's Soothing Sounds At The Warehouse

        Trevor Hall has a super-sleepy voice. It's like those people who roll out of bed looking casually beautiful. He sings about patience, forgiveness, hope, longing and the cosmos. You can almost feel the hemp fibers in this mellow music. Hall mixes chill reggae, Sanskrit chanting and hip-hop phrasing....

                Stacy Phillips And His Bluegrass Characters At The Outer Space

                Stacy Phillips can do pretty miraculous things with a slide and a resonator guitar or a dobro. He makes the thing sing, squeezes out all kinds of expressive slurs and glides, and yet his tone is precise and clean. He can breeze from bluegrass to Hawaiian to jazzy Western swing and on into klezmer....

                    Born of Osiris is a technical death-metal band from outside of Chicago. In case you're rusty on your Egyptian mythology, Osiris is the ancient god of the dead.

                        Composer and bandleader Daniel Levin is a creative cellist, in the spirit of wide-ranging improvisers like Erik Friedlander and Tom Cora.

                                The Katie Bull Group Project engages in the business of small-group vocal jazz, but not as usual. "All Hot Bodies Resonate," Bull's fifth album, came out in 2015.
